The 20 Most Hated College Basketball Players Of All Time

Larry Johnson

You might be too young to remember Larry Johnson at UNLV. Hell, you might be too young to remember Larry Johnson at Charlotte. But back in the day, Johnson was not only one of the best players in the nation for one of the best teams in NCAA history, he was also one of the most hated. Read More »

Darko, The White Mamba & The NBA’s 12 Most Unlikely Champions

NBA championship teams are built around franchise players, Hall Of Fame coaches and close-knit team chemistry. While superstars are necessary for getting buckets and making plays, a championship team would not be complete without the guys who ride the pine all year long. Read More »

After the lottery went down earlier this week, the 2013 NBA Draft is set. While this draft doesn’t appear to be particularly strong, at least on the surface, there have been other draft classes surrounded by lofty expectations. Those picking in the lottery are looking for a savior. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Adam Morrison Talks About Last Chances & His Love Of Rage Against The Machine

Adam Morrison

It hasn’t been an easy ride for Adam Morrison. Yes, he was a No. 3 overall pick. And yes, he has more championship rings than LeBron James. But after a solid rookie year with the Bobcats in 2006-07, where he averaged 12 points a game and was selected for the All-Rookie Second Team, his basketball career has been on a steady downward spiral ever since. A terrible knee injury in training camp before his second NBA season derailed his chances in Charlotte, and a trade to the Lakers brought some hardware but miniscule playing time and zero personal satisfaction.

Brooklyn’s Ready For The Barclays Spotlight; Adam Morrison’s Comeback Continues

The Brooklyn Nets won’t be blaring “All of the Lights” as their theme song this season because, among other things, they’ll only be using some of the lights in the brand-new Barclays Center for BK games. And they’re special lights. We knew for a while that the Nets would use theatre-style lighting, which is what the Lakers and Knicks use, the kind of lighting that dims the crowd and puts the floor on an imaginary stage by highlighting the game.

Deron Williams Isn’t Joking Around; Adam Morrison Takes His Last Shot

Deron Williams

Deron Williams

Deron Williams is everybody’s top-two pick for best NBA point guard. Who you see as being better between Chris Paul and D-Will is splitting subjective hairs; you would take either if you had the chance. He doesn’t care so much that he separates himself from Paul this season as much that he wants to separate himself from EVERYONE who’s not a Brooklyn Net. Read More »

We Reminisce: Adam Morrison Nails A Banked Three-Pointer For The Win Against Oklahoma State

Adam Morrison

Adam Morrison lives in a cabin in the woods somewhere, and he kills his own dinner. That’s the portrait of his life I am resigned to, if only because I can’t imagine another human being actively exuding such dishelved indifference with respect to personal appearance. Paul Pierce pioneered the facial-hair-scraps-are-cool movement, and we’ll just have to assume that Adam Morrison wanted to become a groupie. Maybe that’s why I hate the Celtics so much. Read More »

The Best Battle No One Is Talking About: Scott Machado vs. Kendall Marshall

The evolution of the point guard has brought us Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook: big, fast, unguardable. The era of game managers and pure passers has slowly faded, leaving only a few of that breed left to hold the torch for the old school.

This new school lead guard style has temporarily masked the brilliance of the likes of Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Rajon Rondo, Ricky Rubio, and the other pure point guards who manage a game rather than control it with scoring. But over the last three months two East Coast purists have been putting on a display of passing that proves the old school role isn’t extinct yet. Read More »

The Lakers Could Get Dwight Howard… And Chris Paul; Brandon Roy Is Probably Out In Portland

As many pointed out on Twitter yesterday, if the Lakers got both Dwight Howard and Chris Paul, they might as well start the next lockout immediately. We aren’t trying to rain on anyone’s “end of the lockout” parade. Quite frankly, we don’t believe it’ll happen either. But it’s a thought, a thought that a few people in the business have. What if it just so happened that the Lakers didn’t just get Dwight Howard (a very real possibility), but they also nabbed CP3 as well? Howard has this weird fascination with following whatever Shaq did. He also wants to play with Kobe more than anyone else. He also loves warm weather. The Lakers also have assets up the a–. The Magic are also extremely worried – getting more nervous by the day – that Superman 2.0 will leave them just like the original did. Read More »
